I recently had to have an emergency right hemicolectomy which resulted in an ileostomy. This was due to my bowel twisting and completely rotating. The result of this was a lot of my colon died and was removed.
I am grateful to be alive as it was a close call but have found the suddenness of it all quite hard to adapt to. On top of this, I have a long-standing eating disorder (anorexia and occasionally bulimia). I am finding juggling the two quite tough -
especially the nutritional side of it as my diet has had to completely change. I also suffer from severe depression and this has knocked me for six - although I am trying to stay positive.
Does anyone else here have this problem and any advice???
Many thanks for any help.
